How To Display a Bat Skeleton


The Morbid Anatomy Museum brought some fascinating specimens to display at World Maker Faire this year, including this incredibly delicate bat skeleton.


Laetitia Ante Delictum of the Morbid Anatomy Museum explained to curious visitors how she created the elegant bat display. The dead bat arrived in a completely different pose than the one it now holds, so she actually had to break the bat skeleton into pieces and glue it back together at its joints, almost like a model set made of bones.

Stop by and find out more about the curiosities on display at the Morbid Anatomy Museum’s table as well as the extensive programming schedule at their Brooklyn location.
